COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in Strasbourg for Alken-Maes, distribution unclear. Spiced.

Grimbergen Blanche is a true wheat beer in the most traditional sense. The pale yellow Blanche is cloudy, just as you would expect from a wheat beer. Notes of citrus and light carbonation add character to the creamy palate and make Blanche an excellent thirst quencher.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle at the hotel restaurant with my dinner of duck confit in Paris. Sounds more exotic than it really was. Pours a medium to light gold, nice head. Aroma is wheat and an almost lime note. Flavor is a close match - a good bit of coriander, and instead of the typical orange peel notes, something that comes off more like lime or bergamot. Refreshing, and surprisingly enjoyable. Liked this one.

Average fizzy white head. Good lacing. Mostly diminishing. Cloudy average-density light-yellow body. Aroma: citrus lemon, banana, bubble gum, honey, coriander, vanilla. Initial flavor: moderate sweet. Final flavor: moderate sweet light acidic bitter; average duration. Palate: light medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, light astringent finish. dulçor de banana com toques de coentro. Bem condimentada. Bem mais doce que a média. Falta presença cítrica no paladar. Lembra bem mais uma Weiss que uma witbier. Na segunda metade da garrafa aparece uma presença cítrica mais pronunciada, lembrando casca de limão tahiti. O dulçor lembra um pouco sabão, aparecendo como falha. 30 s

tombyars (1749) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 28, 2017
Tasted this in the Newport Bay Hotel, Paris on the 21st September 2017. 300ml bottle poured into a Grimbergen chalice glass. Cloudy gold in colour with a poor white head. Fruity malty nose with hints of clove and coriander. Thin weak mouthfeel and poor lacing. Slight biscuit malt with fruit notes of yellow plum, pineapple, quince and cloves. Hops present in the aftertaste imparting a very slight citric notes to an underwhelming bitterness. Malt on the finish with quince starting to dominate the palate with citrus zest. Again like the Rouge this is fairly weak and bland euro fizz. Needing some proper Belgian complexity!

Одно из лучших Витбиров который я пробовал. Множества добавок делают этот вкус более чем самобытным. Идеально питкое, летнее пиво

blariacum (189) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2017
Fles. Witbier met vleug citrus. Te gewoon (en te weinig echt witbier); een gewone witbier met citroen is volgens mij beter. Valt tegen.
